During his covid-19 press conference on November 10th, New Jersey Governor, Phil Murphy, gave restaurants the green light to install plastic dining domes outdoor for costumes.

For those who don’t know what these dome are, they are special dining pods or bubbles that can be heated. They only hold a number guests at a time but it is with these domes that restaurants will be able to continue to allow outdoor dining and keep people safe.
Since his press conference these igloos have been popping up around the state. Just this week we saw some of the first ones show up in our area.
In Cape May, Congress Hall has taken the CMC lead in bringing these igloos into the dining experience.
According to the Congress Hall website, “Winter Igloos can accommodate parties of up to eight, making them the perfect private and socially-distant outdoor dining option for groups looking to toast the season together.”
Their twelve snow-white igloos sit in the Grand Lawn and feature cocktails and light fare.
Prices to rent these igloos range from $50 to $150 and give you up to 90 minutes of private use. This price does not include the food and beverages.
Is this something you want to try next time you are down?
As a reminder, congress hall will be closing in January and will reopen on March 26th. You can read about the closure by clicking the link below.
